With a trip to the conference championship on the line, number two-seeded Cold Spring Harbor (14-1, 8-1 conference IV, class C) will take on number-three seeded Friends Academy (13-3, 6-2) today at 6 p.m. at Hofstra University's Shuart Stadium.
Friends Academy defeated sixth seeded Floral Park 10-3 a week ago in the conference quarterfinals.
The faced off May 14 in the season finale for both teams with the Seahawks beating the Quakers 10-9 in overtime. Senior Brendan Bouchard scored the winning goal for the Seahawks 14 seconds into overtime to give Cold Spring Harbor the win.
"Friends Academy is an all around great team," said Bouchard, the Bryant University-bound attack man. "They don't make mistakes, they hustle on every play."
Top seeded Manhasset knocked off Seaford 19-3 yesterday afternoon and will take on the winner of tonight's game.
If the Seahawks are able to win, it will give them a chance to take on the Indians, who defeated them 7-2 on May 8. But Bouchard and the rest of the Seahawks know they cannot overlook the Quakers, who held a 9-7 lead over the Seahawks with under a minute to play in the May 14 contest.
"We have to take it one game at a time," Bouchard said when making sure his team doesn't look past the Quakers. "Your days are numbered in the playoffs, its one and done and right now its all bout Friends Academy."
